It seems that the CD was first issued in 1987 and reissued in 1991, because the CD booklet liner notes by Momus are dated 1987 but the CD I have is dated 1991. Note: another song recorded during these 1982 sessions called "The Poison Boyfriend"(written by Currie) was released in 1988 on a limited edition 7".

Info from http://imomus.livejournal.com/302532.html: "The 'legendary lost Momus album' BBC 1 was going to be the 1987 follow-up to Circus Maximus on el Records, and we already had a rather brilliant sleeve illustration (me as Atlas holding up the BBC 1 Earth logo) by Ed Pinsent. But, as fate would have it, I switched to Creation and made The Poison Boyfriend instead. BBC 1 was to have been a theme album -- songs like "The Filippino", "Confectioner" and "Splitting the Atom in Eden" (released here for the first time) would have joined "The Mother-in-Law", "Love on Ice" and "Situation Comedy Blues" (later plundered somewhat haphazardly for Creation albums) on a record deconstructing television and the whole idea of mainstream electronic vaudeville."
